My new hairdryer arrived! It's terracota and cyan and giving me the urge for a spray-dye 80s perm.
Also makes me realise I've not heard of anyone writing a mind-control hairdryer where someone gets more bimbo'd the fluffier their hair gets.
Perhaps not something I'd write myself, except as a background character sort of thing, but.. the imagery makes me wonder if/why it's not been done before.
"July 20, 2019"
A sequel to Gone With the Wind, $15 movie tickets being "high", holographic movies going onto real battlefields and into real nuclear reactor disasters. A robot plays Rachmaninoff but no one calls it a simphony.
The sitcom "So Who Wants to Work?" about penniless baby-boomers conning people to stay afloat sounds like it'd do pretty well today though.
Korps*Sci may have some difficulty expressing frustrations/threats to lab assistants..
The rear vehicle is a convertible Talbot Sunbeam. The one in front is also a convertible but had no visible markings. Anyone recognise the make & model?
Poor things were obviously well restored before the owner died & the covers weren't replaced. The wood & fabrics are now rotten but the metal is only just showing signs of rust.
Today I have been going through the Access Control System parts list and making a detailed Bill of Materials. I looked up what sort of economies of scale there are. It's not too bad.
A single ACS will cost nearly £110. But making 10 costs only £75 each. Savings then tail off rapidly.
So it's perfectly economical to make ACS units in lots of 10 or 20 and only cost £2-3 more than making 160 of them. But also £35 cheaper than making them one by one. This is very useful data.
Scavenger, tinkerer, some more to be decided
